title Is Chambers Good Enough To Win a Heavyweight Title?

chambers4344By Manuel Perez: Heavyweight Eddie Chambers (34-1, 18 KOs) feels that he’s now ready for a title shot after his 10-round majority decision over former World Boxing Council heavyweight champion Samuel Peter last weekend at the Nokia Theater, in Los Angeles, California. I don’t want to be the one to break this to Chambers, but he didn’t look so hot against Peter. In fact, Chambers looked barely better than the huge 265 pound Peter, who came into the fight at an all time high in weight. Read the rest of this entry »



title Brewster: “Haye Has One Percent Chance of Beating Wladimir”

haye5357771By Chris Williams: Well, it looks like I’m not the only one that thinks that Wladimir Klitschko will be planting British heavyweight David Haye in the third round on June 20, it looks as if former World Boxing Organization heavyweight champion Lamon Brewster also thinks that Wladimir will win quite easily. According to Eastsideboxing.com, Brewster said that Wladimir Klitschko has a 99% percent chance of beating Haye, because Wladimir is a “natural born” heavyweight and isn’t someone that has recently moved up in weight like Haye has.

title Diaz Decisions Castro

diaz453435By Manuel Perez: Welterweight contender Antonio Diaz (46-5-1, 29 KOs) defeated previously unbeaten Javier Castro (19-2, 17 KOs) by a 10-round unanimous decision on Saturday night on the undercard of Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. vs. Luciano Cuello light middleweight bout at the Plaza de Toros, in Tijuana, Mexico. The final judges’ scores were 95-94, 96-93 and 96-93. I personally had Castro winning the bout by at least three to four rounds because of his much better work rate. However, the judges seemed to be more impressed with Diaz’s harder shots. Read the rest of this entry »

title Will David Price Be The Next British Heavyweight Champion?

price42343535By William Mackay: Heavyweight David Price (1-0, 1 KOs) looked very impressive in taking out journeyman David Ingleby (6-25-1, 4 KOs) in the 3rd round on Saturday night at the Echo Arena, in Liverpool, England. Price, 25, delivered a walloping right hand that connected to the side of Ingleby’s head in the 3rd, sending the journeyman toppling forward on his face. Bleeding badly from his nose, Ingleby got to his feet, stumbled backwards and fell against the ropes. Read the rest of this entry »



title Does Chavez Jr. Deserve To Fight Pacquiao, De La Hoya or Duddy?

chavez56535By Chris Williams: Having seen Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (39-0-1, 29 KOs) fight yet another handpicked opponent last weekend against Luciano Cuello (23-1, 10 KOs) in Tijuana, Mexico, I don’t see how Chavez Jr. deserves a fight against Manny Pacquiao, Oscar De La Hoya or John Duddy. Chavez Jr., 23, struggled mightily with the non-top 15 ranked Cuello, having both his eyes swollen and struggling from the third round on. Read the rest of this entry »
